Mining is one of the two gathering Professions, along with Herbalism. It allows you to gather gem and mineral ores and refine them into jewels and plates, respectively. Talk with Cole (located in Ardentmill) to learn Mining.
- Gathering ore raises Insight by 5 points.
- Refining ore raises Diligence by 10 points.
- Leveling your skill raises Willpower
Ore can be mine by miners from vein. Higher grade ore requires higher level of mining to be sucessful when mining. Below shows a table about veins:
|Vein||Ore Dropped||Recommended Level|
|Silver Vein||Silver Ore & Opal Ore||1|
|Magenta Vein||Orihalcon Ore & Amethyst Ore||1|
|Blue Vein||Steel Ore & Sapphire Ore||3|
|Brown Vein||Bronze Ore & Adamantium Ore||4|
|Emerald Vein||Mithril Ore, Emerald Ore & DEX Crystal Ore||5|
|Gold Vein||Gold Ore & Topaz Ore||6|
|Aquamarine Vein||Aquamarine Ore & Diamond Ore||7|
|Red Vein||Garnet Ore & Power Crystal Ore||8|
|Black Vein||Black Crystal Ore & Dark Crystal Ore||9|
|Purple Vein||LUK Crystal Ore, Wisdom Crystal Ore & Lithium Ore||10|
Ore can be smelt by using a certain amount of ore and molds. The higher the grade of the plate, jewel or crystal, the more the amount of ore needed and the higher the grade of the mold.
You need to be at Ardentmill, near the smelting equipment (beside Cole) to refine ores. The ores have a 100% success rate for smelting, though you might get magic powders instead. (use for making transformation potion with alchemy)
Mastery and Levelling
Mastery can be gain by:
- Refining ore - 20 mastery
- Mining ore - the amount varies according to the grade of the vein. The mastery from mining a certain grade decrease as your profession level increase. (e.g you gained 20 mastery from mining silver vein at level 1 but decrease to 16 mastery at level 2) Refer below:
|Silver Vein||Magenta Vein||Blue Vein||Brown Vein||Emerald Vein||Gold Vein||Aquamarine Vein||Red Vein||Black Vein||Purple Vein|
Mining, like all professions, has 10 levels. Higher levels allow you to mine for higher grade ore. When you reach the required mastery, you can level your profession by visiting your instructor and paying a fee.
